English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar Rhodesian (DR) (*****) (1996)
Product Number: 004-002-19777
Dunhill's Dead Root designation is reserved for Root Briar-finished pipes that display exceptionally noteworthy grain patterns and are extremely rare compared to the marque's normal fare, making them highly collectible and desirable. This Rhodesian from the legendary marque is certainly deserving of that distinction and the prestigious five star stamps it received since there's no shortage of breathtaking grain here. Below the beadlines just above the transition, flame grain sweeps around the bowl while the entire rim above the beadlines boasts a beautiful array of birdseye. Crafted back in 1996, this pipe was well-cared for and maintained and is definitely sure to please any Dunhill collector or grain aficionado.- Jeffery Sitts
